Mr HASTIE (Canning) (13:37): I'm pleased to announce that more than $435,000 has been allocated to Canning under round 2 of the Safer Communities Fund. This $40 million program is designed to keep Australians safe in the places where they work and live. The program assists local governments, community organisations and schools to mitigate crime through funding for security equipment, such as lighting and CCTV.

Canning has received funding for six different projects. In the Shire of Murray, over $190,000 will enable the purchase of additional CCTV and upgrade the shire's security service. In the City of Mandurah, $76,000 will be used to install CCTV on the new Mandurah Bridge. GP Down South in Mandurah will receive $9,800 to install CCTV at its new health hub, due for completion late this year. This government has already contributed $2 million to the health hub and I'm pleased that we're continuing to support it.

Finally, the Shire of Serpentine and Jarrahdale will receive $160,000 to install new CCTV and to purchase a trailer with variable message signage with CCTV built in it. This will be used to promote road safety and to capture footage to prosecute hoons who rip up our streets.

Security is my priority for the people of Canning so I'm pleased that the federal government is going to help to keep these Peel communities safe.
